Parkland Survivor David Hogg Says He’s Faced 7 Assassination Attempts This Past Year
By seven assassination attempts, he means a prank phone call and… Well, that’s about it.
This is yet another Parkland kid whose parents should have thrown his phone away and put him in therapy the day after the shooting.
I watched a TV interview with Hogg soon after the shooting and I said immediately that he wasn’t well. Which isn’t surprising because he’s a very young guy who experienced major trauma and was never given time or resources to grieve and heal.
People are exploiting these kids for political and financial reasons and there are no responsible parents’ in the kids’ lives to protect them. This goes for both pro-gun kids like Kashuv and anti-gun ones like Hogg.
Obviously, there are crowds of normal parents at that school, and we don’t hear about their children because the parents are helping them through the grief in private.
The title of the post comes from Hogg’s description of himself, so I’m not inventing anything. He also has mental illness that predates the attack, so he’s doubly vulnerable.
